about me, currently


I am linking up with Kristen to catch up on what I have been up to currently.

ReadingBelieve Me by JP Delaney

Believe Me

I have been slow going with this one. Not that it isn’t interesting, but just that I haven’t had much time to pick up a book this month. I am about half through and hope to have it finished for the book link up next week! I am listening to Winter Street on audiobook in the car and enjoying it. I care not about seasons and read beachy books in the winter and Christmas books in the summer. It is just who I am.

Winter Street (Winter, #1)

Listening: Besides audiobooks, Chris was telling me about this awesome podcast he listened to about this guy who runs a security company. He basically gets hired by companies to check the security measures. He talks about how he was hired to rob a few banks. It is crazy to hear him talk about how he just walks in and gains immediate access to their computers and could compromise the whole place so easily. It is only a 30 minute episode and worth the listen if you have the time. It is called Darknet Diaries, this is episode 6 I am talking about.

Watching: The Originals is back on and we have been catching up on all the drama there. When we don’t have anything else to watch, we watch Blue Bloods since we still have several seasons we haven’t seen on Netflix. And, as always, Friends before bed.

Traveling: Just planning our annual summer beach trip to Gulf Shores! I am excited to spend some time away from the office and to see how Zoe does at the beach this summer. Last year she wasn’t mobile, just sitting up. It will be interesting to see the change this summer.

Grilling: Chris is grilling out hamburgers and chicken this week for dinners. I love to have corn on the cobb on the grill, that it my favorite! He made some awesome hot dogs last week. One of my favorite things about summer is all the grilled food.

Pinning: This quinoa fried rice needs to happen for lunch to change things up from my usual.

Lusting: I am in desperate need of some cover ups for the beach! I saw this one at Target that looks really cute. And I also really like this one from Amazon for a great price!!! There are so many cute color options from the Amazon link!  Anyone have any favorites?

    Ooh I hope Zoe has a great time at the beach now she’s mobile! I’m sure it will be a blast. I don’t really worry about seasons when I read either. I mean, I like to read some “seasonal appropriate” books but other than that? Whatever I want!! LOL I have a Christmas themed cozy mystery I really hope to read soon because it’s the third in a series and I loved the first two. 🙂

    I hope you find some time to read more! That can be difficult some days, especially during the summer when we all tend to be very busy.

    I could also use a new cover up for the pool. I have one, but it’s old, and it would be nice to get something a bit lighter.

    I love grilled food as well! I cannot wait until I’m back in MN for a bit & my parents’ grill will hopefully be going going going ha.

    I love the cover-up that I bought at Old Navy last year. I pretty much live in it instead of sitting out in my swimsuit! When are you guys headed to the beach?

    I too have been looking for a good beach cover up but have yet to find one. Heck I evne need a new swim suit but haven’t found anything I like. Super picky when it comes to them. Ok, love love The Winter Street series. Each book gets better and better. However, I will say that I would NOT read the last book, Winter Solstice while driving!! It’s so good but also it’s sad but in a good way. There were times I had to put the book down because I couldn’t continuing reading with my eyes filled with so many tears. But it is so good!!

    i don’t care about seasons when i read either. in fact, if i read too many christmassy books around christmas, i turn into an even bigger grinch than i already am.
    yay beach! jelly. we have a vacation coming up where there will be a pool so i need a cover up or two.
    definitely checking out that quinoa fried rice! i love quinoa. yum!

    OMG I don’t need that Amazon coverup because I have some but I need to find room in my budget to purchase ASAP. Walmart actually had some cute ones this season and their prices are always good. Cannot wait to see all the pics of Zoe at the beach! I’ve been having a hard time reading later this month, probably because I’m busier than I have been and actually getting things done. Vicious cycle.

    Enjoy your time at Gulf Shores!

    The quote at the end is awesome! I’m writing that one down.

    Your summer trips sounds fun!

    I always look at people in their cute cover ups and say love it…not me. LOL I have like a tank and elastic shorts on. When do you guys go? I wonder if Zoe will like the sand.

    A gulf vacation sounds glorious. That podcast sounds very Mr. Robot, hahaha. I’ve only seen a few episodes of that show, though. Grilling is one part of summer that I DO enjoy 🙂

    totally adding that quinoa fried rice to the mix!

  • Reply laura June 12, 2018 at 12:32 pm

    I think you just need to go ahead and buy that cover up from Target – it’s really cute. But I like the pom-poms too. Oh the life of an indecisive…. Grilling is the best ever, and so healthy!
